Unsuspected by Ordinary People, Economic Ultra-Elites Command the Base Institutions that Regulate Our Fundamental Living Conditions
They Are Far Above Conventional Distinctions of “Right” and “Left”—They Grant Ruling Privileges to the Group that can Demonstrate the Ability to Deliver What They Require.
If The “Conservatives” Had A More Coherent, Political Gangster Force–As They Did in 2000–The Ruling Elite Would Have Supported “Conservatism”.
The function of a quasi-governmental cartel/monopoly is not to benefit consumers.
It is to enforce economy of scale, raise prices and discourage competition to benefit elites.
The popular philosopher, G.K. Chesterton first considered that the Catholic religion might be true, when he heard contradictory claims made about the Church.
In the current civil crisis over Obamacare, at least 3 contradictory sets of facts can help us to clear the smoke away from the mirrors, to triangulate to the truth and see what’s really going on.
1) Hillary was the most popular, but Obama became president.
2) Biomedical Technology is one of the last healthy export manufacturing sectors of the economy, but it will be taxed to death.
3) We were told that Obamacare would stick it to Big Insurance and Pharma, but now it’s admitted that they have the the best seats at the table.
How do we cut through the fog of media propaganda and arrive at a reasonable semblance of the truth? We can look at a similar example from another time we know more about, where the bodies are buried and who put them there.
In the 1930s, someone heard Adolph Hitler being screamed at behind closed doors by the head of the German Central Bank [Hjalmar Horace Greeley Schacht]. Who could get away with screaming at Hitler and live?
Someone fronting from a group so powerful, it could have ordered that Hitler be made into Hoffaburger. It turns out that when Hitler first assumed power, he went with hat in hand to make his case to the heads of German industry that his gangster militias could deliver labor peace.
(Not that the Big Boys were exactly helpless – their corporate army was called Der Totenkopf, the “Death’s Head” – the SS. Their corporate heirs are the people who put out RU-486 chemical abortion. [IG Farben > Hoechst > Roussel Uclaf])
A roughly similar set of events may have been behind Obamacare. Fast forward to the 2007-2008 American Presidential race. Hillary Clinton was winning, then without any plausible explanation, Barack Obama was suddenly ahead. It happened in a way that made Hillary supporters cry foul.
Behind the scenes, it may have happened that Hill and Barry attended a command performance in front of the Big Boys who run things. It was found that Hillary carried too much political baggage, she tried but failed in 1993 to deliver Hillarycare, so, suddenly, Barack Obama is the man in command, with the most agile political gangster force and an effective, ready-made, prince-charming cover story.
Our politicians cry about insuring everyone and keeping jobs at home. But the most obvious solution, open insurance markets among the 50 states, won’t be allowed. And Biomedical Devices, one of the most healthy sectors of the export economy, will get a stake through the heart.
What’s the group that’s so powerful that they can ruin the country to unanimous hosannas from the media? The same one that was able singlehandedly to defeat both the Trial Lawyers and the Doctors with one hand tied behind its back: Big Insurance.
It’s now openly acknowledged that the group in charge of what became Obamacare, from the bitter beginning was lead by Big Insurance and Pharma, both touted in “the free press” as bad boys who would receive their just punishment, in the circus leading up to the vote on the bill that couldn’t be read – “read it after you pass it”, 6 times longer than the Bible.
Big Insurance and Pharma have the seats of honor at this robbers’ banquet. Harry Reid is in charge of the waiters, Nancy Pelosi runs the kitchen – and Barack Obama supplies the bouncers.
It remains to be seen, however, whether or not Big Insurance can pay the bill, now that it’s due.
A century ago, politicians and newspapers claimed that the establishment of the Federal Reserve would protect the little man, stabilize the economy and banking, and shield us from depressions and crashes. We now know that was just bait & switch, the Federal Reserve was never intended to do any such thing. The newspapers of that time led people around by the nose, feeding them anything their ultra-elite owners wanted.
Of course, we’re so much better informed now, there’s no way such a charade could be pulled off today!
